SFFS Community Partners

Authentic - Reciprocal - Sustainable

As we've settled into our permanent home in the Mission District, we have worked to honor our philosophical commitment as a Quaker institution to engage in and with our community in a meaningful way. We have sought out and sustained ongoing mutual relationships with community organizations; these efforts have grown from isolated projects and curricular units to authentic and reciprocal community connections.
